Progeria is an accelerated aging disease that causes children to age 8-10 times faster than normal. Children with Progeria suffer from a lot of the same symptoms that a senior citizen would. Currently, there is no cure for Progeria. However, with the research being done and the new drug trial, there is hope. Children afflicted with this disease usually die in their early teens of a heart attack or stroke.
PLEASE come if you can make it!
